  Yesterday we were en route to Cranbourne Botanic Gardens.
I was surprised to see an adult Pacific Gull over the Freeway, northwest of the shopping complex, and later another accompanied by two much more likely Silver Gulls. Once at the Gardens, we saw five immature PGs overhead. There was a strong SW wind blowing.

At least twenty years ago, I recall being very surprised indeed to see a pair of PGs at the Cranbourne Tip - we presumed they had followed the Silver Gulls up from Westernport - a note appeared in 'Australian Bird Watcher.'
